What is this mysterious 0 euro note that will be sold in France in 2024 ?

Note to collectors, a new 0 euro note will be marketed in France within a few weeks. And it is not just a piece of paper, but a real commemoration of the landing in Normandy and the 80th anniversary of the liberation of France in 1944 which is proposed here.

Concretely, this special note will be printed in only 3000 copies which will be numbered from 000001 to 003000. As rightly explained by our colleagues from Journal du Geek, each document is a small work of art that highlights design details to highlight these moments.

Notes that tear off

Of course, these 0 euro notes have no legal value, but they are made with the same care and using the same process as that used for the bank notes we use every day. Oberthur Fiduciaire is responsible for their production and Euro Banknote Memory is responsible for their marketing.

You will therefore find the traditional watermarks, security threads, special inks, holograms, and other unique serial numbers, which are able to guarantee the authenticity of these products.

If you are not familiar with this universe, you should know that these 0 euro notes were introduced in 2015, and that their popularity is growing among collectors. Today there are 2,500 of them in nearly 30 different countries and some of them have increased enormously in value. Hobbyists don't necessarily make it about money and sometimes simply enjoy owning these objects filled with a story or a particular reference.

To cite just one example, the Caen town hall has marketed 0 euro notes which “are all unique, each with its own serial number”, reported our colleagues from Liberté – Le Bonhomme libre last August. The operation worked very well, since 2000 units of this ticket sold for two euros had been sold in a little over a year. Among the buyers, tourists, but also collectors who ask for specific serial numbers.

If you are interested in these new tickets, please note that they will go on sale on February 11, 2024 from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in Isle (Limoges, 87). You can get more practical details at the following address.

What to remember:

  • A 0 euro note will be marketed next February
  • It is launched to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the liberation of France and the landing in Normandy
  • Collectors are snapping up these objects which have historical and sentimental value
